I like Mathematica, but Wolfram's LinearProgramming (LP) built in function's syntax is horrifically complicated / and dare I say rather unintuitive.

I suppose we could put these values into variable to make what we are doing a bit clearer.

By way of contrast if we look at the JuMP package syntax for LP it's very beautiful and matches the typical NP problem setup with descriptive variable names.

The performance for this small problem is not worth comparing. I will be comparing some bigger problems performance between Mathematica, and Julia.
